Both the F-Pace and GLC have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The F-Pace has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The GLC’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the GLC.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the F-Pace’s standard All Surface Progress Control allows you to creep down safely. The GLC doesn’t offer All Surface Progress Control.

To help make backing safer, the F-Pace’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The GLC doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the F-Pace and the GLC have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.

The F-Pace comes with a full 5 year/60,000 mile basic warranty, which covers the entire truck and includes 24 hour roadside assistance. The GLC’s 4 year/50,000 mile basic warranty expires 1 year and 10,000 miles sooner.

The F-Pace’s corrosion warranty is 1 year longer than the GLC’s (6 vs. 5 years).

Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Pace for 5 years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Mercedes doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the GLC.

The F-Pace’s optional 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 99 more horsepower (340 vs. 241) and 59 lbs.-ft. more torque (332 vs. 273) than the GLC300’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. The F-Pace S’ standard 3.0 supercharged V6 produces 18 more horsepower (380 vs. 362) than the AMG GLC43’s standard 3.0 turbo V6.

The F-Pace’s 2.0 turbo diesel produces 45 lbs.-ft. more torque (318 vs. 273) than the GLC300’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace with its standard Diesel engine gets better fuel mileage than the GLC300 4MATIC (26 city/33 hwy vs. 21 city/28 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The GLC doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the GLC (255/60R18 vs. 235/60R18). The F-Pace’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the GLC (265/40R22 vs. 255/45R20).

The F-Pace’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the AMG GLC43’s 45 series front tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace offers optional 22-inch wheels. The GLC’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

The F-Pace’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (51% to 49%) than the GLC’s (53% to 47%). This gives the F-Pace more stable handling and braking.

The F-Pace handles at .86 G’s, while the GLC300 4MATIC pulls only .82 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The F-Pace executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1 seconds quicker than the GLC300 4MATIC (25.9 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 26.9 seconds @ .65 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the F-Pace has a 1.7 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the GLC (8.4 vs. 6.7 inches), allowing the F-Pace to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The F-Pace has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the GLC with its rear seat up (33.5 vs. 19.4 cubic feet). The F-Pace has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the GLC with its rear seat folded (63.5 vs. 56.5 cubic feet).

The F-Pace’s cargo area is larger than the GLC’s in almost every dimension:

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the F-Pace has a standard rear fixed intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the GLC only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The F-Pace offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The GLC doesn’t offer headlight washers.
